Dolores Umbridge from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is an aversion. She manages to appeal to the [[FantasticRacism magic!Nazi]]/sadomasochist niche that the school just happens to have. Plus, many at the ministry seem to find her pleasant enough.enough, though that may be because many of them don't know of her true nature.
** Played straight with Tom Marvolo Riddle, aka Lord Voldemort. While there are devoted followers such as Bellatrix Lestrange and Barty Crouch Jr., the rest of the Wizarding World fears and/or despises him. None of his "followers" looked for him after his supposed "death" after the first Wizarding War. Most stay with him out of fear or their cause and not loyalty. At the end of the final battle, most of them abandon him. When he dies, everyone rejoices and they throw his body in an unmarked vault in the school.

* ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' had Judge Robertson. Although the family told him not to go to the funeral after all the [[AttackOfThePoliticalAd mudslinging Robertson did to win an election,]] Phil drags the rest of the family, since he considered Robertson an old friend. At the wake, Philip forgot his eulogy, and asked anyone with a happy memory of Robertson to share it. When no one said anything Philip asked if anyone remembered him. The first speaker stated that [[HangingJudge the judge sent him to jail for a crime he didn't commit.]] The second speaker, the former gardener, recalled when [[BadBoss Robertson not only refused to pay him for his services, but tried to have him deported.]] Even the judge's [[TheMistress mistress]] had nothing good to say about him. When Will tried to guilt the audience by partially quoting [[Theatre/TheMerchantOfVenice Sheilob's monologue,]] the first speaker called out Will on who he was to tell them that. When Will responded that he "killed" Judge Robertson, [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing the attendees clapped and cheered him.]]

* In ''Literature/TwilightoftheRedTsar'' the Soviet Union becomes an international pariah thanks to Stalin [[spoiler:using nuclear devices and man-made smallpox on the People's Republic of China, purging even more people, '''COMMITING ANOTHER HOLOCAUST''', and]] generally being a dick.

* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'': Ralph suffers from this because he's an 80's video game villain. What makes this worse is that his working buddy (and the title star of the game) Fix-It Felix, Jr., has a HundredPercentAdorationRating and the Nicelanders use it to shun and ridicule Ralph. In fact, this is what forces Ralph to start the main plot: he's tired of that approval rating!



* ''Film/TheJungleBook2016'': Shere Khan is extremely disliked among the jungle since he will happily violate the jungle law, and it is only through fear of him that the animals don't publicly criticize him. When Mowgli returns to challenge him, he was able to unite the entire jungle against the tiger even though he set the jungle on fire.



* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'': In one episode, when Al is believed dead, the entire neighborhood apparently broke out into song ("Ding dong, the shoe man's dead"), and declared it a "cruel, cruel hoax" when they found out he was still alive. Al even admits in another episode that the entire city "curses the day [he] was born."
* ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'': [[AlphaBitch Alison DiLaurentis]]' antics have earned her the disdain of nearly everyone in Rosewood, and she has multiple enemies on the A-team that want her dead; her own friends have gotten sick of her behavior and are now against her. Hell, even her ''own mother'' seems to hate her, to the extent that [[spoiler:when she saw someone hit Alison over the head with a rock, she ''[[BuriedAlive buried Alison alive]]'' to cover for that person.]]



* ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead''. Everyone in town dislikes them, though not without good reason. It shows the most in one episode where the duo "calls in dead" to get out of school and the reactions to their deaths range from overly happy to complete indifference. The only people in the entire town who are actually saddened are [[ExtremeDoormat Stewart Stevenson]] and [[HippieTeacher Van Driesen]], the latter of whom cries when he hears the news.



** The episode ''The Boys Of Bummer'' is a rare version of this Trope PlayedForDrama (even within this show), to not mention it deconstructs Spingfield's love for DisproportionateRetribution: Bart accidentally losing a fly ball (which made his baseball team lose) gives the rest of town enough reason to hate on him non-stop, all day long, for ''weeks''-bad enough that it drives Bart [[DrivenToSuicide into suicidal depression]] and jumping off the town's water tower (which ''they actually encourage him to''), and when it doesn't kills him, they ''arrive to the hospital where he's lying in a coma to keep on raging on him''. It takes [[MamaBear Marge]] [[WhatTheHellTownspeople giving them a well-deserved talk]] for them to finally stop.



* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants:'' Plankton has been stated on more than one occasion to be the most hated person in Bikini Bottom.



* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Just about ''every'' kid in town hates Eric Cartman, though not without good reason. It's to the extent that in one episode, they all flat-out tell Cartman to his face that they don't like him, never thought he was cool, and couldn't possibly have a lower opinion of him than they already do. Though most of the time, Cartman either misses the point completely or doesn't care.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': House Bolton aren't particularly loved by the Northern Houses, especially when they become the new Wardens of the North. Even Littlefinger calls them the most despised family in the North, in particular Ramsay. Must have something to do with all the flaying and torturing....

** While not as hated as her son Joffrey, the common folk of King's Landing don't like Cersei much at all. Her haughty, crappy treatment of the subjects and the rumors of incest certainly don't do a lot to change that. Later, her destruction of the Sept of Baelor which killed hundreds if not thousands of people, including Margery, Loras, Mace, and Kevan, and her grab for the Iron Throne after Tommen's subsequent suicide cemented her position as the most hated person in Westeros.

* [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Thanos]] in [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Guardians of the Galaxy]] is hated by pretty much everyone who works for him. His two "daughters", Gamora and Nebula, both take the first chance they get to betray him, and [[BigBad Ronan the Accuser]] turns on him and promises to kill him the instant he (Ronan) doesn't need Thanos's help. It's like the guy suffers from [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Chronic]] ''Getting-Backstabbed'' disorder.

* It's quite possible to literally have this in ''VideoGame/ShadowPresident'', with the easiest route being [[NukeEm nuclear weapons]] (especially nuking allies or countries that can't strike back). Once you hit this level, assassination is the most likely end result.

** [[TheCaligula Joffrey Baratheon]]. '''Nobody''' likes him, and that may have something to do with the fact that he's a bullying little shit who just uses his powers as king to torment people for his amusement: the most prevalent example is at his wedding with his ultra-humiliating "reenactment" of the War of the Five Kings. [[spoiler:When he's poisoned at that wedding, the list of suspects is "anyone other than Cersei who had the opportunity" and nobody is in a hurry to try to find out.]]
-->'''Tywin''' (to Tommen): Your brother was not a wise king, your brother was not a good king. [[spoiler:If he had been, perhaps he would still be alive]]."

* Celestial Being of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' drop deeper and deeper into this as they follow their WellIntentionedExtremist nature and continue making attacks on anyone who they perceive as pursuing conflict. With the appearance of Team Trinity, who are even more aggressive in pursuing their goal than the Gundam Meisters and have no concerns about civilian casualties (to the point that when one of them blows up a wedding just on a whim, neither of her partners are at all concerned about this), the last lingering threads of approval vanish and they become reviled as the worst terrorist organization in history, enemies of all humanity. It turns out that this was [[ZeroApprovalGambit all part of the plan]].

* ThePunisher: With Frank, this trope depends on your perspective. He's portrayed as a friendless Determinator who doesn't care what anyone thinks or doesn't think of him. Everyone in organized crime hates him with a passion. The heroes think he's no better than the criminals he kills, but can't figure out what to do with him. Killing him is something most of them aren't willing to do, and throwing him in jail means he's just going to kill everyone locked up in there with him. The heroes who are willing to kill, like Wolverine or Deadpool, don't really have a problem with Frank killing rapists and drug dealers. Super villains don't pay a whole lot of attention to him because he focuses on killing street-level criminals, whom none of them give a damn about. While senior NYPD police officials are always under a lot of pressure from politicians to shut him down, it's been made clear multiple times that most of the rank-and-file police officers approve of his actions and put absolutely no effort into apprehending him.
